A local neighbourhood move can be extremely stressful even if it is simply around the corner. This stress is multiplied several times when the move is interstate, and, moving across Australia can be quite expensive as well. Interstate backloading is one option where you can save some of the costs of your move. Basically, backloading involves sharing truck space with other customers who are moving to the same city and at the same time as you.
Backloading can be defined in another way. Rather than return with an empty truck from a move, removalists take up a load of furniture for transportation on the return journey. So if you are moving interstate in that same direction, you can take the benefit and pay only for the truck space in one direction. Interstate backloading can really be an economical option if you are on a budget.
While it may not be very easy to secure a backload removal when you need it, a little research helps. Call up furniture removalist services or go to their websites and find out if they offer interstate backloading. If they do try and co-ordinate with them to find a suitable day and book in advance for your move. With the booking, half your job is done. Now you simply need to concentrate on the packing and have it ready when the truck arrives on the moving day.
The key to a smooth and stress free move is planning and organisation. Start collecting boxes for packing well in advance. Packing boxes should be of uniform size so they can be easily handled and stack nicely in the truck. Ensure that you have the right type of packing materials, tape and markers handy. A good idea is to get the special moving boxes from services. Usually these are hired out for a small charge and can be returned after the move.
Most people underestimate the time needed to pack. It is easier to donate, sell or dispose off the items that you don’t need or will never use. Saves the effort and money as well. Cupboards and drawers should be emptied of their contents which should be packed up in boxes.
First, begin packing all those items that you don’t require immediately. Fragile items like crockery and glassware needs to be packed in bubble wrap and then put into boxes. A large box will hold more items but this is not a practical idea if it weighs too much as a result. Better to have smaller boxes for heavier items so that they are easy to move.
Leave the moving of large furniture items to the professional. They have the equipment and the expertise to move them safely and quickly. In fact, hiring professionals like Furniture Removalist Services for your interstate move ensures quality service and your belongings are in safe hands.
